£2.9m for Lough Erne’s heritage 2 November 2015

The unique beauty of County Fermanagh’s lakelands is to benefit from a £2.9m lottery grant to improve wildlife habitats and conserve historical sites

 

BBC

 

The Heritage Lottery Fund grant will go to the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership that is led by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).

It will be used to preserve wildlife species and habitats and better manage a 500 sq km area of the lakelands.

The project also aims to protect the area’s 100 scheduled monuments.

Many of those are neglected, in serious disrepair and all but forgotten.

New paths, bird hides and camp sites will be provided to give better access to Lough Erne, and there will be festivals, exploring days and events to celebrate the landscape and its extraordinary history.

Protecting

The area is also an important breeding ground for wading birds, such as curlew, snipe and lapwing, whose populations have seen a catastrophic decrease of 83% in the last 30 years.

That problem will be addressed by better land management, tackling invasive species that devastate native plant and animal life, and restoring ancient woodlands and hedgerows.
